I am crazy about homemade wrap sandwiches. I have a wrap almost every day for lunch. They're so easy, and if you choose the right ingredients, very healthy! So, I thought I'd do a quick post today and share one of my favorites.
Start with a tortilla - I like to use a whole wheat or multi-grain tortilla. Unlike bread, I have yet to see a tortilla with HFCS in it, so it's a pretty easy to acquire HFCS-free ingredient. Next, add a smear of hummus to your tortilla. Then top with your favorite ingredients - today I added sliced onion, bottled roasted red bell pepper, fresh basil, and feta cheese.
I came across this combo in Cooking Light. They also added sliced lemon chicken, but I never have lemon chicken on hand and like it just as well meatless. Roll up and enjoy! So quick and easy!
Other standbys for me are a smear of cream cheese topped with a smear of basil pesto, onion, tomato, and sliced turkey. Or a smear of cream cheese topped with a smear of salsa, sliced avocados, and onion. The combinations are endless!
So, for a quick and healthy lunch, grab some fresh ingredients and a tortilla and go crazy! And if you come up with some particularly tasty combos, let me know about them!
